Here is a list of the French R-L21* I know about thus far. It is not necessarily exhaustive. These are ancestral surnames and locations. Keep in mind that L21 is an SNP that was just discovered last October and that was not included in Family Tree DNA's Deep Clade-R test until late January of 2009.

1. Bontron-Major - Montussaint, Doubs, Franche-Comte, France
2. Chartier - Quebec, Canada
3. Delahoussaye - Paris, Île-de-France, France
4. Dubois - Dieppe, Seine-Maritime, Haute-Normandie, France
5. Dussault (Dusceau) - La Rochelle, Poitou-Charentes, Charente-Maritime, France
6. Gery - Morlaix, Finistère, Bretagne, France
7. Gignoux - Grenoble, Isere, Rhone-Alpes, France
8. Hamon - Le Bourgneuf-la-Forêt, Mayenne, Pays-de-la-Loire, France
9. Huet - Dol-de-Bretagne, Ille-et-Vilaine, Bretagne, France
10. Le Bras - Brasparts, Finistère, Bretagne, France
11. Le Com - Chateauneuf-du-Faou, Finistère, Bretagne, France
12. Mylott (Millot) - Villers-le-Sec, Haute-Marne, Champagne-Ardenne, France
13. Rotrou- Cloyes-sur-le-Loir, Eure-et-Loir, Centre, France
14. Sicher - Drain, Maine-et-Loire, Pays-de-la-Loire, France
15. Turpin - Brécey, Manche, Basse-Normandie, France

There is a 16th person if one includes Bonnet, whose ancestry is Savoyard from Piemonte, Italy.

That's not bad for a drastically under tested region and a fairly newly-discovered SNP.

I just spotted a brand new R-L21* in the French Heritage Project, Cartier, kit 82258 (scroll down to the Cs; the entries are alphabetical):

http://www.familytreedna.com/public/French-Canadian%20Heritage%20DNA%20Project/default.aspx?section=yresults (http://www.familytreedna.com/public/French-Canadian%20Heritage%20DNA%20Project/default.aspx?section=yresults)

Hopefully, he'll join the R-L21 Plus Project.

I know the surname Cartier looks a lot like Chartier, the surname of a man who is already a member of the R-L21 Plus Project, but the haplotypes don't match. Different line.

Wow, so we can create now the R-L21 club of Drain ;-)
For a city of about 1700 inhabitants: that's great!!

It's pretty amazing, I think.

If you look at this map (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Map_Gallia_Tribes_Towns.png) of Gaul circa 58 BC, you will see that the Pictones lived just south of the Loire, apparently in the vicinity of Drain. Just across the river, though, and perhaps somewhat on the Drain side, were the Andes and the Namnetes. I'm pretty sure the Namnetes gave their name to Nantes.

One of my own ancestors on my father's side, Paul Micou, came from Nantes.

Anyway, we seem to be doing pretty well in Gallia Celtica and Gallia Belgica, but there are no L21s thus far in old Aquitania. I think we have one in Gallia Narbonensis, that is, if Grenoble is located in what was Narbonensis.

Yes, you are right Rich: Drain was not so far from the limits between Namnetes, Andes and Pictones during Gaulish times, and then from the limits between Brittany, Anjou and Poitou during middle ages.
Namnetes gives the name to Nantes, Andes gives the name to Angers (Anjou), Pictones gives the name to Poitiers (Poitou).

The region of Drain (Les Mauges) was the center of different conflicts between dukes of Poitou, Anjou and Brittany during middle ages.

In the beginning The Mauges belong to Poitou. But following Viking invasions in 9th century, tke king of France created a new county: the county of Herbauges from a part of Poitou and from Nantes county which belonged to Brittany.

The breton Alain Barbe-Torte defeated the Vikings and then took possession of Herbauges county. But Alain Barbe-Torte died a few years after, and his wife got married with Foulque Le Bon duke of Anjou. Then The Mauges belonged to Anjou.

Henri Hubert, in his book on the celts, think it is possible that Pictones of the Loire Valley are related to Picts of Scotland. He speak about the Cone d'Avanton: one of the golden hat found in Poitou. This object seems to show that celts were present in Poitou in 1000 BC.

I was just reading about some of that in Koch's book, An Atlas for Celtic Studies. In it, Map 17 shows the area in greater detail than the map at the link I posted before. It shows the Celtic tribe the Andecavi in the region of Drain, just south of the Loire (then called the Liger). The Pictones were much farther south. The Namnetes were to the west of the Andecavi, around Condevincum (Nantes) and the mouth of the Loire.

That whole area (the Loire Valley) is rich in Celtic artifacts, especially bronze and iron swords.

Those Golden Hats are interesting, too. All of them were found in or near places where L21 has been found.

Perhaps I am wrong, but it seems to me that L21 may have come down the Rhine Valley, turned left (west) in the Low Countries, moved into Northern France, and crossed the Channel into the British Isles from there. That's a downhill route most of the way, and Northern France is a level plain, isn't it?

Bernard -

It is interesting that you mentioned Hubert and his connecting of the British Picts and the Gallic Pictones. He also connects the Brigantes, the Parisii, and the Cassi of the Continent to the British tribes of the same names, which makes sense to me.

On pages 214-215 of his book, The History of the Celtic People, Hubert says, "There were Parisii in the neighbourhood of modern Paris. The Brigantes came from Switzerland and Upper Bavaria; Bregenz was originally Brigantum, and Cambodunum (Kempten) was a town of the Brigantes. They founded another Cambodunum on the road from York to Chester . . . The Cassi must have belonged to the same group as the Veliocasses, Viducasses, Baiocasses, and Tricasses; this group perhaps gave its name to Hessen.

The presence of the Parisii, Brigantes, and Cassi among the Britons shows that they were related to the Celtic peoples of the Continent, and also points to the part of the Celtic world in which we should look for the origins of which they preserved the tradition."

I would like to encourage men of French ancestry to order a y-dna test from Family Tree DNA and, if they are R1b, to follow up with the Deep Clade-R test (which includes L21) or the L21 test as a stand-alone test. The Deep Clade-R can be ordered from a link on one's "Haplotree" page. L21 can be ordered as a separate test from FTDNA's "Advanced Orders" menu.

Peyrignac, where La Tour's ancestor came from, although in the modern department of Aquitaine, is not in old, historic Aquitania. It is north of the Garonne River in what Caesar called Gallia Celtica.

Looks like L21 covers most of central France between Brittany and the Alps, but with a higher density in the Loire Valley and Brittany.

It's hard to say, really. Thus far most of those tested have been from NW France, but I think that is due to the fact that most French Canadians (the biggest source of our recruitment pool of those of French ancestry) came from that region.

Over this past summer we recruited a number of men of French ancestry for testing. The recruitment turned out to be a random set of R1b1b2 of French ancestry, since we found we couldn't really select out those who would be L21+ from all the other R1b1b2. Overall, 50% of those tested have turned out to be L21+. In Northern France the figure is 60%.

I plan to post the complete set of testing figures once the dust settles and all our recruits have results, but we still have several who are awaiting results. Needless to say, it seems obvious that R-L21 is well represented in France, especially Northern France, where it may reach levels equal to or greater than those in England (which is saying a lot).

Another thing to consider is the large number of R-L21 in Western Germany. My own feeling is that there is probably a band of R-L21 running from Germany through Northern France and that enough testing in Eastern France would fill in what now looks like a gap on the map between the Germans and French.

I have started the Normandy Y-DNA Project at Family Tree DNA:

http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Normandy/default.aspx

WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone who can actually trace his y-dna (father-to-son) line back to Haute-Normandie, Basse-Normandie, or the Channel Islands (Îles Anglo-Normandes) of Jersey or Guernsey is eligible to join the Normandy Y-DNA Project.

Women can join the Normandy Y-DNA Project by submitting the y-dna test results of a male relative who meets the project membership requirements.

Note: Merely finding that one's surname might have come to the British Isles with the Normans, and/or that a possible earlier French version of it exists, does not by itself constitute tracing one's y-dna line to Normandy.

This project is really for those who can actually trace their y-dna ancestry back to Normandy. I realize there are many folks with ancestry in the British Isles who think they are or may be descended from one or more of the Normans who came with William the Conqueror, but one should have pretty solid evidence of that before joining the Normandy Y-DNA Project.

What about Spain ? 7% has been found in Cantabria and 1.6% in Extremadura

7% of what sample size? 1.6% of what sample size?

Thus far quite a few Iberian guys have been tested. Very few are L21+. R-P312*, R-SRY2627, and R-M153 are far more common in Iberia than L21.

Believe me, I have recruited Iberian guys for testing. L21+ results are few and far between. I expect some to turn up eventually, especially in Galicia, but they just haven't yet.

Andre Sire came to Quebec c. 1668..........from Fontenay le Compte and is positive P312 and L21.........

Interestingly there is an old book pre 1900 which lists ancient families from Poitou who were originally from Geneva Switzerland..........and the Lesuire family is amongst them.

Lesuire is the actual spelling from France........

This would make sense as Switzerland and the Italian region Alps are the ancestral homes for P312 and L21........

Certain of these Helvetian Celts drifted north int southern Germany and Belgic areas............while others drifted into the Rhone Valley and down to the Po Valley.

My understanding is that in France DNA testing is restricted to research purposes only, thus the lack of contribution from them for comparison.

Rideau (there is a town called Azay-le-Rideau (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azay-le-Rideau) in Centre on the Indre River, but I don't know if the Rideau surname is connected to it at all)

Here is a map showing the regions of France pretty clearly:

http://www.placesinfrance.com/map_france.html (http://www.placesinfrance.com/map_france.html)

The following lists the regions in France which thus far have not produced any L21+ reports (I have given the map number from the map above in parentheses to make it easy to spot them on that map):

Auvergne (16)
Bourgogne (Burgundy) (12)
Corsica (22)
Languedoc-Roussillon (20)
Limousin (15) (La Tour's ancestor came from right on the Limousin border, however)
Midi-Pyrenees (19)
Nord-pas-de-Calais (1)
Picardie (2)
Provence-Alpes-Cote-d'Azur (21)

Here's what I think. The apparent concentration of L21 in northwestern France is partly real but also partly the product of North American immigration patterns. The fact that we already have L21 from pretty much all around the rim of France I think is indicative that it is widely distributed throughout that country. Right now we really need some test subjects from the areas above, especially (1), (2), (12), (15) and (16). Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that many Canadians or Louisianans have ancestors who came from those places.

If we have to wait around for more results from current French citizens we may all be pushing up daisies before much is learned

There are a few benefits from being in R-L21 Plus project. We have one of the best databases of deep clade tested, 67 length haplotype people. We even have quite a few that have deep"er" clade tested for the newly discovered SNP's downstream of L-21+.

One of the results of having the deeper levels of data is that we've attracted several researchers who run their phylogenetic diagramming/clustering tools and Time Most Recent Common Ancestor calculations.

Compare that to the 52,000 or so entries from the British Isles, many of them SNP tested, and you will appreciate the significance of the level of L21 turning up among men of French ancestry (and L21 is still a relatively newly-discovered SNP). :cool-v:

It's amazing to me how many French R-L21* there are given the comparatively limited testing and timespan that L21 has been tested for there.

I would not be at all surprised if we eventually find out that the country with the greatest absolute number of R-L21* people is France, with England second and Germany third.

The populations of Ireland, Scotland and Wales are just so much smaller and testing (apparently of American immigrants) there is so much higher.

Things we call Irish clusters may have to be renamed more appropriately or perhaps just be surpassed with larger "continental" R-L21* sub-clades.

Agree or disagree?

I agree. France, Germany, and England are just far more populous countries than Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. That recent study of R1b1b2 in France out of the Univeristy of Santiago de Compostela in Spain is intriguing because it found that, in six of the seven areas studied, what it calls "R1b1b2*" was the most frequent variety of R1b1b2. Since they didn't test for L21 or P312, it leads one to wonder just how extensive L21 is in France.

Second, are there any DYS391=12 in the French RL21's besides Major?

I can trace my family back to #29 in your list. How do I go about getting tested and joining a project?
